Taking steps to improve efficiency and accessibility to paratransit services in New Jersey for disabled and elderly residents, the full Assembly on Thursday unanimously approved (74-0) a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Daniel Benson, Carol Murphy and Bill Moen to establish the Transportation Services Coordination Task Force.

Under the bill (A-2429), the group would study ways to better coordinate transit services, particularly for people with disabilities, and then make recommendations for NJ TRANSIT – including Access Link, the agency’s paratransit service for people with disabilities – as well as the New Jersey Department of Transportation and counties.
